An estimated 63% of Aboriginal people smoke in remote NT, but improvements are possible and are happening now. A Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) approach uses repeated plan-do-study-act cycles to improve services.

This position will work closely with Tobacco Working Group of the NT Aboriginal Health Forum, and is supported by the Chair of the Tobacco Working Group, who is seconded from Menzies School of Health Research. The position will involve travel to support health services across the NT.
